The HP Multi Jet Fusion powder bed fusion process allows the Mechanical Systems Competence Center to produce components in PA12. There are almost no production residual reductions to be observed. What is practically unthinkable in other processes, or can only be achieved with great effort, can here be realised without any problems. Another option is to produce parts partially or entirely in colour. The robust components in PA12 can be used directly as «end-use parts». This is a considerable advantage, especially for small series or functional samples!
